New Haven, CT – On April 13th, Trillium’s Paul Hilton spoke at The Student Conference for Corporate Responsibility at Yale University. The conference, hosted by The Intentional Endowments Network and the Yale-Dwight Hall SRI Fund, utilized speaker presentations, panel discussions, and action planning to broaden attendees’ understanding of financial ESG integration and shareholder engagement. Among the attendees were many student leaders from student-run sustainable investment funds from around the country.
As a part of a panel of sustainable investment practitioners, Paul discussed Trillium’s approach to shareholder advocacy, specifically how our integrated approach to ESG combines advocacy and financial performance.
The Intentional Endowments Network is made up of a group of 160 universities and mission-driven institutional investors collaborating to learn the ways to achieve a growing, thriving, and sustainable economy while also attaining risk and return goals through investment actions.*
The Yale-Dwight Hall SRI Fund is an undergraduate student organization that manages the endowment of Yale University’s Center for Community Service. Trillium’s own Cheryl Smith previously served as an advisor for this fund, which is largest campus-based student-run service organization in the country.*
